Guys could you give me some suggestions for a saber smith. I'm looking to get one with sound and flash on clash. I like Jay Gone Jinn's sabers but I haven't been able to get with him. I tried to join the FX Saber Board but that was a few days ago but for some reason I haven't been approved yet.

Thanks everyone

Hi Mel,

My partner got a saber from JQ Sabers They had great customer service and the sabers are amazing. I'm going to have them custom make me one soon. Smile

One of the members of our base, Terrapin, is an excellent sabersmith.
I can PM you his info if you want.

I can recommend Randy "Arm on Fire" he did mine, and it's excellent!

FX sabers forum. he sells sabers from time to time, plus he builds them

as well.

I'm a big fan of Genesis Custom Lightsabers. He can do simple or exquisite

I'd say that Advanced Light Weaponry deserves some looking into. Each piece is a work of art, and is definitely worth the money. I have yet to hear/read any complaints about this line of sabers.

I'll also suggest Randy "Arm on Fire". He helped me make my saber and it came out amazing. If you don't have any real idea of what you want yet, a good way to see a ton of options to think about for a base idea visit the Modular Hilt System and mess around with combinations.

I'm a member of both FX and IRA. there are some great smiths located on both forums. It basically boils down to how much time you have, how much you want to spend, and of course, their availability. Here are just a few names to look out for:
Madcow (Genesis Cust Sabers) FX
Vader's Vault FX
Jango Fett (Kilsythe Customs) FX
LDM FX
Kit Fisto (Saberhead Conversions)FX
Sollus Vir (Cavalry Cust Sabers) FX
Darkside Engineering IRA
IndustrialAction IRA
DarthAlice IRA

these are just some of the people whom I can recommend. good luck!

I'm really not that hard to g hold of, but am currently busy with other things to take on a commissioned build. If you go with someone through FX-Sabers, be sure they are either in the mining colony section, or the saber guild.
